Need advice about itinerary in Morocco
Hi I am travelling with my wife and two boys ages 13 and 15 to Morocco in August. August is probably not the best time to be there but we will be there for 10 days. We are flying into Casablanca and leaving from Casablanca.
Thanks for any input.

It all depends on the attractions that you will want to see.
my best advise is to get a guidebook
Lonelyplanet, fodors, Rough guide...
Good luck.

We were there last March for 9 days with our kids (ages 11 and 14 at the time). We flew into Marakkech and out of Casablanca. We spent 3 nights in Marakkech, 1 night in Ouazarzate, 1 night in the desert, 1 night in Merzouga, and 2 nights in Fez. Our trip to the desert was definitely the highlight and I strongly recommend that you do that.
